No matter where you turn these days, news broadcasters, financial pundits and market watchers are talking about the Federal Reserve and what they will do with interest rates. Will they continue to increase rates or become more accommodative and slow down their increases? Since the 2008 financial crisis, the Fed has raised rates eight times (once in 2015, once in 2016, three times in 2017 and, so far, three times in 2018). What will happen next?
Atlanta Financial Newsroom
Atlanta Financial and Biggers Blackmon Join Forces
We are thrilled to announce that Biggers Blackmon, LLC, a wealth management firm formerly with offices in Eufaula, AL, and Atlanta, GA, will be joining our operations. The principals of the two firms came to know each other through a mutual association with Commonwealth Financial Services and enjoy a similar approach towards operations and customer satisfaction. Combined, we will unite more than 50 years of financial advisory services.
“This affiliation is a great move for the clients of both firms,” said AFA co-founder and partner Cathy Miller.
“We’re better together and our clients will reap the rewards in terms of more efficient operations, expanded customer service and, in some instances, reduced trading costs,” elaborated Biggers Blackmon founder Janis Biggers.
Biggers Blackmon was founded by Janis Biggers in 1992. Biggers’s experience with a big-four accounting firm as well as in financial operations management with an agri-business company paved the way for the formation of her wealth management practice.
As part of the combined efforts, partner Chris Blackmon will be moving to the current AFA offices in Atlanta and Chris and Janis will continue to see clients by appointment in Eufaula.
We look forward to working together towards “Making Life’s Journey Richer” for our clients.
An estate plan is a map that explains how you want your personal and financial affairs to be handled in the event of your incapacity or death. Due to its importance and because circumstances change over time, you should periodically review your estate plan and update it as needed.
